by fromVery comfortable This pad was very comfortable. I used it with my new LuLu +15 women's sleeping bag. The only trouble I had with this pad was I was unable to roll it up compactly to fit back into the storage bag.

by fromThe only one that has worked for me I'm a side sleeper and this is the only pad I've used that keeps my hip bone off the ground. Combined with a Big Agnes bag with the pad pocket, this makes great sleep system.

by fromVastly superior to 1.5" self-inflating As a bigger guy, being comfy on the ground is tough. I've used standard 1.5" self inflating pads, and they work ok on soft, level ground, but on concrete or rock, they'd kill me, especially when I sleep on my side. There's just not enough to keep me up off the ground. Then I tried the Q Core SL. It cost a bit more, but I've never slept so well in the back. Used it the first time backpacking in the Bighorns, where finding a rock-free bed spot is nearly impossible. There was one morning when I packed up my tent and commented "wow, I slept great on that mess of rocks last night?" It's just so much more comfy than the thin pads, and it packs lighter and smaller. I easily fit this pad, along with my sleeping bag, in the lower compartment of my pack. The only downfall is the price, but you get what you pay for.

by fromcomfortable and warm I have only used this once so far, but have been thouroughly impressed. It is narrow, but we are both side sleepers, so it doesnt bother us. It was so much more comfortable(and lighter) than the 1.5' pad that I swithced from. I just wish it was self-inflating, but it only takes a few minutes to blow-up.

by fromIncredible Comfort The Q-Core SL is very compact, lightweight, and comfortable. With a year of use, I have been very happy with this sleeping pad, despite paying full price. Without a deep sleeping pad, I cannot sleep when backpacking. The Q-Core SL is more comfortable than my bed at home.

by fromlight, small, and comfy Very light and comfy. I have the regular and it is a bit narrow but I had no problem staying on it and enjoyed being able to sleep comfortably on my side. Packs really small. I did not test the warmth factor as the temps at night barely dipped below 40. It's expensive but worth the good night's sleep.
